RD306 - ETNO response to the RSPG public consultation related to the draft Opinion on the coordination of EU spectrum interest: Preparation of ITU World Radio Communication Conference of 2011

ETNO agrees with the necessity to identify as early as possible the main agenda items of ITU World Radio Communication Conference 2011. In particular, among the WRC-11 Agenda Items, the most important from the operators’ point of view are:
•it is important that the mobile allocation of the sub-band 790-862 MHz is not changed for Europe.
•a more flexible international regulatory approach is possible as long as it does not conflict with the objective of world-wide harmonisation and interference free operation of public mobile radio services
•the introduction of new “cognitive” devices requires the regulatory studies to be performed before any change in the Radio Regulations is decided.

The WRCs (World Radiocommunications Conferences) of the ITU-R and their decisions are of great importance for the mobile industry. Therefore ETNO agrees with the necessity to identify as early as possible the main agenda items of WRCs which are of particular interest for the EU policies, in a similar way to what happened for the previous WRCs.
In particular, among the WRC-11 Agenda Items, the most important from the operators’ point of view are:

  • Agenda Item 1.17:  it is important that the mobile allocation of the sub-band 790-862 MHz is not changed for Europe.
  • Agenda Item 1.2: a more flexible international regulatory approach is possible as long as it does not conflict with the objective of world-wide harmonisation and interference free operation of public mobile radio services (e. g. GSM, UMTS). The harmonisation requirements of these networks must be preserved.
  • Agenda item 1.19: the introduction of new “cognitive” devices requires the regulatory studies to be performed before any change in the Radio Regulations is decided.
